Stanley-1542 and Stanley-536 appear to represent the same person because: Edited to match my sources, the sources originally imported with the GEDCOM were absolute gibberish with multiple contradictions and no facts. As a member of the National Stanley Family Association, I am working my way through to get Thomas Stanley's three sons James Stanley 1688-1754, Thomas Jr. Stanley 1689-(b)1764, and John Stanley 1691-1783 and their known descendents corrected. James & Catherine only had 1 son named Elijah and he was born in 1750. Please merge.

Stanley-1542 and Stanley-536 appear to be the same person -- same parents, same wife -- but there are some seemingly large differences in dates and places and lists of children. Are these truly the same person, or are they different people who somehow got intertwined?
